On behalf of the Jenkins GSoC team and mentors, We would like to welcome Dheeraj Singh Jodha, Yiming Gong, Hrushikesh Rao, and Vihaan Thora. They will be working on Google Summer of Code projects in the Jenkins organization, and they have already done some contributions.
This year we have the following projects:
Plugin Health Scoring System - Provide a ‘plugin health indicator’ for plugin maintainers and Jenkins administrators.

Automatic git cache maintenance on the controller - Automate the maintenance of cached git repositories on the Jenkins controller.
Pipeline Step Documentation Generator Improvements - “Enhance the Jenkins Pipeline documentation generator to produce better documentation for thousands of Pipeline developers”.
During the next weeks project teams will be reaching out to potential stakeholders in order to establish connections and to get comments regarding their project designs. If you are interested in the projects, please join discussions in the Developer mailing lists and project meetings once they get scheduled. Please also expect expect more detailed blogposts about the projects soon.
